BSA assumes Jump Start Youth Soccer Program

  

PRESS RELEASE                                                                            DECEMBER 18, 2012

Brunswick Youth Soccer Moving in a New Direction

In recent history, the City of Brunswick has had 3 different organizations in charge of the administration of soccer in the community.   The youngest soccer participants were offered opportunities to participate in soccer via “Jump Start”, an athletic services company whose services were sub-contracted by the Brunswick Recreation Center.   The Brunswick Youth Soccer Association, “BYSA”,  is the administrator of the recreational soccer program for youths ages 5 -18 and the Brunswick Soccer Association, “BSA”, is responsible for the travel soccer program in the community which is for the more serious soccer player.    

The BYSA has offered recreational soccer programming for youth players in Brunswick for over 20 years and the “all volunteer” soccer organization will continue to offer recreational youth soccer programming hopefully for years to come, but for the youth soccer players looking for more development there will be a new opportunity available. The BSA is excited to announce that they have reached an agreement with the Brunswick Recreation Department to become the administrator of a developmental soccer program for the youth soccer players in Brunswick.   The “Jump Start” soccer program will no longer play a role in Brunswick community soccer.

Bruce Miller, the former Head Coach of the Cleveland Crunch Indoor Professional Soccer Team (1995 – 2001) and recently retired Head Boys Soccer Coach at Brunswick High School (4 seasons), has been instrumental in getting the ball rolling. 

“Soccer has played a role in my life for over 50 years.  As a 16 year resident of Brunswick and the parent of a son who went through the Brunswick Soccer hierarchy, from Rec to Travel to High School, it has always disturbed me to see our programs fail to match the success of our neighbors to the north (Strongsville) and south (Medina).  As the High School Boys Soccer Coach it was particularly frustrating to try and compete with the “better” teams when the majority of our soccer participants clearly were not “technically or tactically” astute enough to vie for the level of success that they were “athletically” capable of.  Our kids have not been getting the necessary training at the youngest ages.  By the time they are joining travel, we are so far behind that we cannot catch-up.”

While serving as the High School Head Boys Soccer Coach Bruce attempted to get the Brunswick community administrative soccer bodies to come together “for the good of the game” and the “advancement of the quality of soccer we could be playing”, but was unable to achieve any real change.  Thus soccer in Brunswick has limped along at a level that Bruce perceives as “disappointing”.   Bruce Miller emphasized that there are a number of terrific soccer people in our community in both Rec and Travel, however, Bruce stated the different philosophies among the Brunswick administrative soccer bodies was the reason he was not able to achieve the change that was needed if the goal is to create a program that can and will produce players that will allow Brunswick High School to compete with the best teams in the state.   Thus, the agreement was reached between the BSA and the Brunswick Recreation Department in order to work toward that goal.
